He did an excellent job of settling my case. And we were successful with the case. Without his hard work, determination and communication we wouldn't have taken care of things the way he did.

Great Experience and
Mr. Novack was very professional and very knowledgeable about my case and worked with me hand and hand for the entire experience and process. He has an exceptional staff, that is very professional, displayed great politeness and showed concerned about my overall well being, which is a skill you don't find in too many other law offices, from my past experience. He won my case, fought for me to prevail against an unfair insurance company, and treated me and my situation with respect. Thank you, Mr. Kovack and you're the team.

Lawyer Did A Great Job For Me
I was seriously hurt in a car accident in late 2017. I was confronted with many complicated issues involving insurance, law, medical expenses, and damage to my car. I was so fortunate to find Attorney Paul Novack and to be represented by him and his excellent staff. They did a great job for me, made sure I understood all of the situation, and concluded my case swiftly and successfully. I would highly recommend Attorney Novack to anyone in Florida who needs a highly skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable attorney.

Car Accident
On May 20th, 2012 while stopped at a red light, I was struck by a hit and run driver who left the scene of the accident and abandoned his vehicle in an adjacent parking lot and left on foot, allowing the authorities to retrieve all his credentials to identified the individual. To say the least, my car was a total loss and I was taken to the hospital where I spent several days recuperating. Soon after, I approached Attorney Novack who was willing to handle my case, because the other driver had minimum insurance, and his insurance was reluctant to cover the damages, using various technicalities. Attorney Novack handled my case in an extraordinary manner; he kept informed at all times, providing me with all the details as to how the case was developing. Because of the nature of the accident, my case was very complicated, but Attorney Novack managed to finalize the case and provided me with much better results than I had anticipated. I will be forever grateful to Paul Novack, for his honesty and integrity. I would not hesitate for one second to seek his advice and services for any matter. I would definitely recommend Attorney Novack to all my family and friends and whoever is considering his services. As far as I am concern, he is a one of the best..
